  • Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros

    Single Modernist Rum

    70cl / 45%

    5 (42 Reviews)

    Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros

    A relaunch of Havana Club's Cuban Barrel Proof edition, Selección de Maestros has benefited from an eye-catching packaging upgrade and is bottled at 45% for extra oomph. The Gold Medal-winning liquid inside Havana Club Selección de Maestros remains the same as for the old Cuban Barrel Proof - as the name suggests, the casks have been hand-picked by the maestros roneros from the company's finest aged stocks. The rums selected by the maestros roneros are finished in special casks chosen for their aromatic properties before being bottled at a higher strength than the standard range for a more intense, immediate flavour on the palate.

    Mount Gay Select Blend / TWE Exclusive

    The world’s first exclusively-bottled Mount Gay rum: cask-strength and blended from both pot- and column-still spirit from the Mount Gay distillery. This is a big and bold Barbadian rum, the island’s tropical Caribbean climate dialling Mount Gay's classic, naturally-sweet butterscotch and tropical fruit flavours up to 11, and adding layers of complexity and nuance. Aged for seven years and blended from carefully selected casks, it balances fruity spirit against sweet and spicy oak for a rum sure to appeal to whisky connoisseurs just as much as rum fans. Available only at The Whisky Exchange.

    Santa Teresa 1796 Rum

    Honeyed single estate rum from Venezuela with elements of bitter chocolate, nuts and buttery biscuits. It is made, unusually for a rum, through the solera process: casks of different aged rums are stacked vertically, the oldest (aged around 35 years) at the bottom, and as the distiller draws rum from one cask they top it up with younger liquid from the blend. Santa Teresa 1796 was awarded Best in Category (Aged Rums 15+) at the International Cane Spirits Festival 2007 and is best enjoyed over ice or mixed with mineral water.

    Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum

    2020欧洲杯时间 A truly superb dark golden rum made in Bermuda by Goslings, who are of course much more famous for their Black Seal rum of Dark 'N' Stormy fame. To overlook this complex sipper would be a mistake, however - we think it's a hidden gem.
